Redskins @ Eagles

Recommended Posts



The Eagles took both games from the Redskins last season, with the first win breaking a streak of five straight losses versus Washington. Philadelphia has won four straight Monday Night Football matchups with the Redskins, including last season's 34-24 victory at home in Week 7.

Washington has lost two straight games, including a 31-23 loss to the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. The Redskins have topped 25 points only once this season, tied with the Eagles and Cardinals for the fewest such games in the NFL.

Philadelphia beat the Giants, 25-22, to snap a three-game losing streak at home. Since the current playoff format was instituted prior to the 2002 season, only 10 of the 78 teams that opened a season 5-6 have advanced to the playoffs (12.8 percent of teams).

After rushing for at least 90 yards in five of his first seven games this season, Adrian Peterson has failed to reach 70 yards in any of his last four. Peterson's teams have an overall 15-37 (.288) record when he rushes for fewer than 70 yards, compared to 60-31-1 (.658) when he rushes for 70 or more.

Carson Wentz completed 71.4 percent of his passes against the Giants, the fifth time in six games he's been at 70.0 or better. His season-long percentage is 69.7 after connecting on 60.2 percent of his passes last season -- only Cam Newton (+10.5) has a larger increase from last season.

Opponents have run the ball 34.0 percent of the time versus Philadelphia this season, the lowest percentage in the league. Washington runs the ball 42.5 percent of the time, gaining 117.7 yards per game. The Redskins have gone 6-1 when rushing for at least 100 yards this season.

Who do the Redskins pick up at QB now that Colt is done and Mark Sanchez is their QB1? Bradford, Cutler, or Kaepernick? :yao:

Man I legit feel bad for Redskins fans...

So you put your backup qb in early in the second quarter, first play your rb takes 90 yards to the house, and you only give him the ball 5 times the rest of the game?
